ICC World Cup - 23rd match, Group C

England v Kenya

England won by 7 wickets (with 60 balls remaining)

14.1

Collingwood to Tikolo, no run, on middle-and-leg and that's defended forward

14.2

Collingwood to Tikolo, 2 runs, wide, swinging gently away towards off, and that's just helped off the back foot

14.3

Collingwood to Tikolo, no run, outside off and driven square, straight to the fielder, and it's well picked up

14.4

Collingwood to Tikolo, no run, on the button and defended forward

14.5

Collingwood to Tikolo, 1 run, dragged down and that's played easily to square - the throw coming in to the bowler's end

14.6

Collingwood to Suji, no run, inside edge nearly dragged onto the stumps

Kenya 62/2   PD Collingwood 1-0-3-0

16.1

Collingwood to Suji, 1 run, horrible inside edge goes behind square

16.2

Collingwood to Tikolo, no run, defended forward

16.3

Collingwood to Tikolo, no run, big appeal from Nixon there for a snick - there was definitely a noise, but must have been the ball flicking the outside of the pad

16.4

Collingwood to Tikolo, 1 run, slower ball tucked off the hips to deep square

16.5

Collingwood to Suji, 1 run, driven on the front foot to cover and that's picked up

16.6

Collingwood to Tikolo, 1 run, guided down to third man for a single and a steal of the old strike

Kenya 68/2   PD Collingwood 2-0-7-0

18.1

Collingwood to Tikolo, no run, straight, a good shout, but Nixon pulls out of an appeal, as that one took some edge

18.2

Collingwood to Tikolo, no run, on middle and that's driven back to the bowler, Collingwood, who practises his best ten-pin bowling strike action with a mock shy at the stumps

18.3

Collingwood to Tikolo, no run, short, doesn't get up, and the batsman has time to caress that behind point. Nice caressing

18.4

Collingwood to Tikolo, 1 run, played out to the cover boundary where that's swept by the man who knows what his job is (ie the sweeper)

18.5

Collingwood to Mishra, OUT, a loose shot, on one knee and chops that one right into his stumps and there are some big celebrations there for Collingwood, the two-handed hop

T Mishra b Collingwood 0 (2m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

18.6

Collingwood to Obuya, no run, played over that one on the back foot

Kenya 74/4   PD Collingwood 3-0-8-1

20.1

Collingwood to Tikolo, no run, short and that's dinked off the back foot to the gully

20.2

Collingwood to Tikolo, FOUR, (tomato) souped through mid-off with a crashing drive. Collingwood hurt his fingertip trying to stop that one

20.3

Collingwood to Tikolo, 1 run, short and dibbled towards the cover boundary for a quick single

20.4

Collingwood to Obuya, 1 run, edge, but that fell safe

20.5

Collingwood to Tikolo, 1 run, driven out to long-off where it's thrown back in quickly

20.6

Collingwood to Obuya, no run, on the money, slower ball to end the over and that's a nice big defence

Kenya 84/4   PD Collingwood 4-0-15-1

22.1

Collingwood to Obuya, no run, swinging into the batsman who defends on the front foot

22.2

Collingwood to Obuya, no run, nicely bowled! Cutting back into the batsman who gets a thick inside edge

22.3

Collingwood to Obuya, FOUR, and he stands tall, takes a heavy step down the ground and smites it with gross power past Collingwood for four

22.4

Collingwood to Obuya, no run, super slower ball there, but it's read by the batsman who closes the book and switches off the light

22.5

Collingwood to Obuya, no run, "yes Colly," shouts the shy Nixon behind the stumps as this outswinger is firmly defended

22.6

Collingwood to Obuya, 1 wide, slow and spearing down the leg side like a piece of driftwood. Nasty delivery, rightly called a wide

22.6

Collingwood to Obuya, FOUR, have some of that. Again drifting into his pads, a clean, well-timed pick-up over midwicket gives him four. Well placed and extremely well timed too

Kenya 99/4   PD Collingwood 5-0-24-1

34.1

Collingwood to Tikolo, no run, outside off and mistimed by Tikolo, looking to cut that one down through cover; just plays over in the end

34.2

Collingwood to Tikolo, 1 run, slower ball and that's driven to mid-on. "Brilliant, Paul," exaggerates Nixon

34.3

Collingwood to Kamande, no run, driven to the covers this time

34.4

Collingwood to Kamande, no run, short, a scoop outside off, misses and Nixon quickly whips the bails off just because he can and not because the stumping was genuinely on

34.5

Collingwood to Kamande, FOUR, drags that short and towards leg - Kamande doesn't miss out, picking that off at knee height and playing it through fine leg

34.6

Collingwood to Kamande, 1 run, outside off and a mis-timed single skews to mid-on

Kenya 144/6   PD Collingwood 6-0-30-1

36.1

Collingwood to Tikolo, 2 runs, clipped firmly away in front of square for two to bring up the 150

36.2

Collingwood to Tikolo, no run, left alone outside off

36.3

Collingwood to Tikolo, 1 run, overpitched and a half-volley is driven out to long-off

36.4

Collingwood to Kamande, OUT, steps back to give himself room to the slower ball, but the offcutter hits off stump with the batsman swinging across the line

JK Kamande b Collingwood 17 (31m 28b 2x4 0x6) SR: 60.71

36.5

Collingwood to Onyango, no run, swinging into the righthander, low, and the batsman does well to dig that one out just short of yorker length in front of off

36.6

Collingwood to Onyango, no run, frees his arms to drive that slower ball back past Collingwood - stops on the shot and that rolls tamely back to the bowler

Kenya 151/7   PD Collingwood 7-0-33-2
